Prairie Fire Marathon: Mile 11

What a beautiful day for a marathon (or half marathon)!

Runners set out on the second annual Prairie Fire marathon at 7 a.m. (and 8 a.m. for the second heat), and the first runner arrived at the Diets in Review water station at Mile 11 at 8:30 a.m.

You go, runner.

Wichita Kansas RunnersFor future information: I am bomb at handing out water cups. I was on the Gatorade table, handing out cups of sticky Gatorade, and not once did I get splashed (at least by runners grabbing cups from me).

Runners grabbing water from Ashley (green jacket) splashed me, and my cups splashed the girl behind me. We all learned how to do the can-can to dodge!

She is awesome – joined a runner to finish the race at Mile 11. It’s about a 26-mile run.
